  • FunctionPlays an important role in the regulation of cell survival, cell division, angiogenesis, cell differentiation and cell migration. Functions as potent mitogen in vitro.
  • Tissue specificityExpressed in granulosa and cumulus cells. Expressed in hepatocellular carcinoma cells, but not in non-cancerous liver tissue.
  • Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the heparin-binding growth factors family.
  • Post-translational
    modifications
    Phosphorylation at Tyr-215 regulates FGF2 unconventional secretion.
    Several N-termini starting at positions 94, 125, 126, 132, 143 and 162 have been identified by direct sequencing.
  • Cellular localizationSecreted. Nucleus. Exported from cells by an endoplasmic reticulum (ER)/Golgi-independent mechanism. Unconventional secretion of FGF2 occurs by direct translocation across the plasma membrane. Binding of exogenous FGF2 to FGFR facilitates endocytosis followed by translocation of FGF2 across endosomal membrane into the cytosol. Nuclear import from the cytosol requires the classical nuclear import machinery, involving proteins KPNA1 and KPNB1, as well as CEP57.

Active human FGF basic full length protein images

  • 1D SDS-PAGE of ab88394 before and after treatment with glycosidases to remove oligosaccharides.
    Lane 1: ab88394
    Lane 2: ab88394 treated with PNGase F to remove potential N-linked glycans
    Lane 3: ab88394 treated with a glycosidase cocktail to remove potential N- and O-linked glycans.

    Additional bands in lane 2 and lane 3 are glycosidase enzymes. The results suggest that ab88394 is not glycosylated.
